This has been my favorite spot for a local pint of microbrew for the last six years. The staff is very accommodating in every way and we still see some of the same faces behind the bar. All around a family friendly place for lunch or dinner if you're a "beer snob" or if you're hosting one from out of... More

We enjoyed our experience here. The service was excellent the burgers were great! Great bar food as well as a broad selection of other pub food. We found this is not a place to buy a cup of coffee. Neither of us drink alcohol. Other pub food. We found this is not a place to buy a cup of coffee.... More

I am a beer snob like you wouldn't believe. Lafayette Brewing Company makes a few great beers. They serve them in a real pint, not one of those fancy little glasses that leave you wondering where the rest of your beer is. Sampler flights are available. The food is also really good. The seats are comfortable and tables are spaced... More

Okay, if you don't like craft brewed beers, you won't be as enthusiastic as I am about this place, but what a nice find in downtown Lafayette. I was here for a relaxed lunch and was able to really enjoy and appreciate a couple of their brewed on site selections. The staff was nice and attentive without being intrusive. They... More

Got fish and chips, and it was just right. Tried a seasonal beer which was the best! Also had an oatmeal stout which was good too. First beer was so good that I had to buy a growler. Afterwards walked down to the bridge and checked out the river. A train went under. It was a good time. Also, it... More

Went once and that was one time too many for me. Not impressed at all. Service was lousy and took 20 minutes before anyone even came by our table to wait on us. Then they got the beer order wrong and did not correct it. Instead just kept convincing us to try what they had already poured and still charged... More

I have been to LBC since the mid-nineties and obviously their beers are original and good (and strong!). Once in a while they'll even have bands upstairs. Concentrating on the menu, it's not cheap but everything is made from scratch and their chefs come up with new items as well as the long-time favorites. I always dug their Scotch eggs,... More

Stopped by Lafayette Brewing Co. for dinner in between plays in the downtown Lafayette area. Glad we did! Seated immediately, and service was great. Thomas did a great job and was very familiar with the menu and the different variety of beers they had. The beer nuggets were delicious and glad our daughter recommended them for an appetizer. I ordered... More

Have eaten here several times and it is always a fun place to go. The menu is large and there are many good dining choices. It can get a bit noisy for a casual conversation at times but everyone will be having fun. There is lots of seating and my favorite seats are near the front, looking out on the... More

We are a mid-sized brewpub located in the heart of historic downtown Lafayette, IN, and just minutes from the campus of Purdue University. Our family friendly environment features a large dining area. We also have a spacious bar and comfortable banquet facility in our 2nd floor Beer Hall for the 21+ crowd. We were the 1st brewery to receive Indiana's small brewers permit back in 1993, and are currently the 2nd oldest operating brewery in the state. Our brewery philosophy is to brew traditional ale & lager styles while incorporating high quality ingredients and innovative practices to create a distinctive array of beers. Our kitchen focuses on generous portions of unique pub fare, and we feature quality, locally-produced ingredients whenever practical. Stop by and experience a bit of Indiana's craft brewing history. We hope to see you soon!
